AEW Star Returns After 20 Months Out At Revolution

AEW Revolution was headlined by the retirement of Sting but with The Icon on his way out, one star made their shock return 20 months after their last match.

Sting’s career came to an end in victorious fashion as he and Darby Allin successfully defended their AEW Tag Team Championship against The Young Bucks. However, not every champion was so lucky at Revolution.

Ever since The Devil revealed themselves in AEW, the Undisputed Kingdom has made their intentions very clear. At Revolution one of those aims got a lot closer to reality as Wardlow won the All-Star Scramble match to claim a future shot at the AEW World Championship. However, one goal was also realised on the show.

Kyle O’Reilly Is Back In AEW

Roderick Strong challenged Orange Cassidy for the AEW International Championship at Revolution with Strong defeating the man who had made the title his own. After the match, however, Strong got a blast from the past as he was faced with Kyle O’Reilly.

O’Reilly looked like he was stalking Strong but ended up embracing his former partner in NXT’s Undisputed Era. However, when handed an Undisputed Kingdom t-shirt, he handed it back to Strong before whispering a message in his ear before walking away.

Kyle O’Reilly last competed in an AEW ring back in June 2022 when he lost to Jon Moxley. O’Reilly had been out of action due to a serious injury and he had been dealing with a post-surgical issue that he revealed at the beginning of 2023.
